    I'd be curious what your total weight is with the trailer fully loaded. My 24x8.5 is 4,000 empty, 10,000 gross but she's got a heavy tongue. Will squat my truck an inch or more even when it's empty. Will squat our Nissan Armada even more so usually need a WD hitch when pulling with it. Nissan is rated to tow 8,500 too but they suggest anything over 5,000 to use the WDH. What's the Durango rated for?
    I don't know how to act my age... I've never been this old before.

    The trailer's empty weight is 2,215 pounds. It's a 7 x 14 tandem axle w/ electric brakes. Maximum gross vehicle weight is 7,000 pounds. Tongue weight is 180 pounds.

    Tow capacity of the Durango 3.6L V6 is 6,200 pounds. With the 5.7L V8 it is 7,200, 7,400, or 8,700 pounds depending on the package.

    Whether the Durango or another RAM 1500 crew cab, we will get the 5.7L V8.

    I'd buy the ram if you don't have another one. we couldn't live without a truck. suv's are nice but several times a year seems we need the bed capacity of a full size.
